A love letter to the village

They say it takes a village to raise a child – so…

Dear Village,

Thank you.  No that doesn’t even begin to describe what I am feeling towards you. I am humbled, thankful, grateful, indebted, appreciative, relieved and overall I am utterly and totally honored that each one you would take such precious time out of your busy lives to include my two monkeys in them.

mikey lap No matter how small or great; you have helped to ensure that my boys know they are loved & wanted. They will know they are special because all of you amazing people have chosen to give part of your time – your life – your knowledge to my little men. These two boys are my life and I don’t think I could get be raising them as well as I am without each one of you.

I am grateful to have you in my/their/our lives. I appreciate you and everything you have done and do for my boys. You have helped give them this rich & wonderful life they have. They are happy and healthy (for the most part). And that has a lot to with you – the amazing people that have come to love & care for my babies.
